Another unusual formation (for me anyways) with today’s puzzle. I don’t usually have double stacks adjacent to fifteens like I do here (you’ll see when you open it). I also staggered a 10/11/10 stack down the middle — that was more out of necessity, given that I started constructing in the top several rows and had to stack the downs that way out of necessity. I was planning on the 11 running down the middle at 18-Down, but I wasn’t planning on having the 10s at 7/29-Down. I actually got very fortunate that those three fit together like that. (It was good, since 7-Down was on my seed list anyway!)

My favorite thing that I learned from this puzzle is at 29-Down. I never knew there was that connection.

As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New freestyle on Tuesday!
